    The Bash was a huge success! Check out the Read More page for a link to some great photos from Nancy Dunbar Photography!

    Presented in part by our Senior level Sponsors, Trident Seafoods and Precept Wines, we had almost 175 attendees, including Principal Wynkoop and his wife, teachers, staff and parents, all of whom came out to support Ballard High School last Saturday night.

    We raised over $80,000 for academics and enrichment programs at BHS!!!! Our Fund a Need this year was "Ballard Cares" which raised funds for three very important programs - InvestED, Bucky's Home for the Holidays and GAINS, and this alone brought in $23,000!

    On behalf of the PTSA, thank you to everyone who attended and supported this event. We couldn't have done it without all of you!
